Dominion Energy has announced the two turbine, 12MW Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) pilot project, located 27 miles off the coast of Virginia Beach, successfully completed reliability testing and is ready to enter commercial service.
The next regulatory step for CVOW is to submit the final documentation for the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) to complete its technical review, which is expected to be complete by the end of the year. The turbines will remain in operation during this review process.
The company will apply the permitting, design, installation and operations experience from the pilot project to its proposed 2,600MW commercial project. That project is on track to commence construction in 2024.
